The best book I have read about Czech history
I looked up Internet to find the address of Mr. Demetz to express my enjoyment with his book, but found this instead. So here I go: The best book about Czech history: As it so vividly with many details describes various descisive periods in Czech history, it makes you understand and feel with the protagonists, be it emperors, religeous reformators or others. I am now at the chapter about Rudolf II and felt I absolutely must write the author to express my thanks for such an interesting book. It is not for the hasty tourist, however, you must have a deeper interest in the history of the Czechs, but for me as an expatriate at the age of three, it made me finally understand my homeland's peripeties and thus being a tourist now will mean something more than seeing uncomprehensible buildings and sights without knowing the historical back-ground.

Extremely Interesting Read
Being raised in Los Angeles i know next to nothing about European History.<BR/>So when i picked up this book and began to read you can imagine i was <BR/>fascinated. The author is truly a gifted writer. And the material holds<BR/>your attention constantly. I did not want to put this down. If you have <BR/>any spare time in your busy life, this is well worth the effort. I love<BR/>this book and i'm not Czech. Thanks to the Author. I Cr 13;8a.
